The students have spent considerable time over the last few days collecting and analyzing water samples to help them test their original hypothesis. The results of the finding have been transferred to the charts and graphs which will eventually lead to further discussion as to what the finding could be telling them.

Morning thoughts

The day began quiet with Blake Island nestled in the fog.

Today is the Sail Challenge when the students ‘take over’ the boat and work as a team to navigate the boat (under silent guidance from the crew).

The marine forecast is calling for the wind to increase and the inland seas to get a bit more exuberant as the day wears on.  What a great day for a sail!
